Hi. Every time I enter my website on Firefox it flickers. Is there any way to fix this problem. I am not talking about changing background color in browser settings. I am talking about more global resolution so other people who visit my site won't see those white flashes each time they navigate my website.

A couple of months back, and entire bookmark folder suddenly disappeared. I assumed that I had inadvertently done something to cause this, though it had never happened before. Today, not only is another folder gone missing, several others have as well. I am using Windows 10 Pro, Version 1909, Build 18363.900. I recently switched to Firefox from Chrome for security issues, but unless I can figure out what is happening here, I am going to switch back. Any ideas?

This is my rig: www.bit.do/kanishkpc and I use the latest Firefox Beta (always updated)

I have been using Firefox without the kind of memory usage that I am seeing recently. With ~10/15 tabs open, my PC would never be troubled. The RAM usage wouldn't be at 90% but in the past few days (possibly because of a beta update?) I get 50% RAM usage (8GB) with 15 tabs. Yesterday concurrently loaded ~6 YouTube tabs caused a 90% usage from the app and I had to close it.

The RAM usage might seem normal but Firefox actually never uses that much RAM - or didn't earlier at least.

I used MalwareBytes a few days ago to do a malware scan and it found my PC clean. If I did have malware (I had a bit of scare earlier), how would I detect it?

I have just had to reload FIREFOX ... loosing both my history/web addresses ... and it would appear also an automatic prompt before downloading a file!

Some files for downloading do not have clearly written titles ... Gzil_56565 for instance.

So when I clicked the file for downloading, the system would check if I still wanted to download the file with a pop-up ... in which I could type over the file's title with something more befitting ... like GODZILLA fights BAMBI.

At the moment ... the files load with their odd titles ... and I am wasting time having to review them and rename!

Many thanks

Parrot OS 4.10, Firefox 77.0

Can't log into Firefox Sync all of a sudden on this computer only. Keep getting error saying that I have to enable cookies and local storage which I cannot figure out how to do. Cookies are not blocked and there is no setting in preferences for local storage.... Remember History is enabled.

Re-install of Firefox did not help. Anyone run into this before?

Today my PC switched off after an accidental power disconnection. Previously if such an event would happen, upon restart Firefox would ask if I want to restore previous session after "a crash" (also showing a sad bear icon) and i would restore my previous session successfully. Alternatively, I would manually press the "restore previous browsing session" button in the menu (if not prompted automatically to do so upon starting Firefox). However, today, after the disconnection, when I tried starting Firefox, it first ran some update before opening up and didn't give me the window asking if I want to restore previous browsing session. The button for restoring previous browsing session manually in the menu was also greyed out. Somehow the option/preference to restore previous session seems to have been unselected (but not by me!)... I have already tried working with some solutions I found through Google searches about this problem and posted on this forum (including working with previous.js - a file which I can not find) but I haven't been successful though I am not sure if I was getting everything stated right. In the sessionstore-backup folder I could only find recovery.js and recovery.bak files only, nothing else, despite folder settings being set to show hidden files. I must note though that my browsing history is still there, and again, having already opened my Firefox once, I have not closed it again so it's still running on the first instance (currently on the latest version of Firefox) after the crash/restart/update/failed-restore-of-previous-browsing-session...I hope that's hopeful :(

Please help, I had critical stuff I was working on through multiple tabs over the past "few months" and it would be a nightmare to try and comb through the history to restore it piece by piece considering that it shows even the stuff I had closed and was no longer working with...restoring the session would greatly help  :(

Subject says it all - just about. When I attempt to open one particular website, I enter my userID and password and when screen opens it is not to the website selected but to a screen showing information about Oracle iPlanet Web Site. Cannot find a way to get past this screen. Been accessing this site daily for months without a hitch. A few weeks ago this happened one time. I closed FireFox and reopened and worked as it should . Then yesterday this started again and happens every time. Can access from Safari. Only install one new application recently, TotalAV but that was about 10 days ago.m Will attempt to add screen shot of what I see. The website I am attempting to access is in connection with my employer and I need to access it on at least a weekly basis. Other websites of my employer work fine. Please advise ehw

Hi, I am extremely annoyed that new browser windows open up when I'm using a gaming mouse with a lot of buttons. I have lost the history of my main window many times as another window opened up with one url. I have no idea of how this happens, but I would love it if the options could include disabling new windows. If I want a new window I can click on the Firefox button, I do not need nor want some mouse click combo to open a new windows. This has become so annoying that I cannot use Firefox.

Please include a 'disable new window' control under options.
